COVID-19 has certainly changed the ways in which we live and interact, and it seems like it’s not going to end soon. Yet, even in these trying times, our Build Your Robot internship is attracting attention, and we’re very happy to see this.
We think it is because our internships offer a unique combination of working in a multidisciplinary team, intense hands-on experience and full-time mentoring. These are the hallmarks of the Build Your Robot programs and the reasons why we can’t have a regular internship in 2021.
Your safety is paramount and we would never risk it by assembling fifteen or more people in a single room during a pandemic. If the team members cannot build something together, with a mentor by their side, the magic is gone. That is why we have to postpone the Build Your Robot internship to a later year.
The good news is that we are announcing Build IT at Home, a team-based technology program in the spirit of the Build Your Robot internships. It’s a one-time-only event designed to combine the best of what Build Your Robot has to offer with social distancing to keep you safe.
